We have all seen such cinematic masterpieces as The Jungle Book and Tarzan. These are incredible films about people whose lives have become a phenomenon of science and society. Surprisingly, this was exactly the same experience that happened to Genie – the psuedonym for the nameless girl, associated with a genie being released from a lamp. She spent almost 14 years in a locked room, in absolute isolation from any contact with people. However, this time, she was caged there not by animals, but by her own father.
